L3. Statistical and Artificial Intelligence methods in hydrology and water engineering

Several statistical methods are being widely used for different hydrological, hydraulic and water quality studies. Based on different statistical methods, some researchers have developed statistical models, which are used for forecasting. Recently, a new non-linear technique named Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) is also emerged. ANN can establish non-linear relationships with input and output variables.

This session will cover following topics:
